Kiloparsec-scale gaseous clumps and star formation at z = 5 – 7


We investigate the morphology of the [Cii] emission in a sample of “normal” star-forming galaxies at 5 < z < 7.2 in relation to their UV (rest-frame) counterpart. We use new ALMA observations of galaxies at z ∼ 6−7, as well as a careful re-analysis of archival ALMA data. In total 29 galaxies were analysed, 21 of which are detected in [Cii]. For several of… (More)
